It didn't take Tampa federal Judge James Whittemore very long to issue a new order after Scientology essentially thumbed its nose at his previous one, and wow, does he appear steamed.

In the new order, which we have for you below, the judge has given the Church of Scientology just ten days to fork over the telephone numbers and occupations left off of a list of 500 names the church had previously submitted under seal, which supposedly represent 500 Los Angeles-area church members in good standing.

In his previous order, Judge Whittemore gave Scientology 15 days to turn over the names, along with telephone numbers, occupations, and indications of which of them were church employees. Whittemore intends to randomly contact Scientologists on the list until he can find three who are willing to serve as arbitrators to hear grievances from a California couple, Luis and Rocio Garcia.
